Work has resumed a while ago for Team Australia. After their 3-0 loss v Spain last night. Despite an encouraging start in the 2nd singles game from Alex De Minaur.
Now they will need to overcome Greece in a do or die situation. The first of three games focuses on Michail Pervilarakis from Greece. And facing him is John Millman who lost v Pablo Carreno Busta.
This time John bounced back stronger with the start he deserved. Where he was able to built on it. And cement the 1st stage win 6-2. So far, so good with little to no pressure there from the World No.38.
He did exactly the same as it was from the initial set. Same momentum with great potential up for grabs midway 4-1 in Stage 2. John may have begun to get catched up by Pervolarakis 5-3. Before John got there safely home for the 1st singles win for Team Australia. 6-2, 6-3.
Australia leads Greece 1-0 going into the 2nd singles game. When Alex De Minaur goes up against Stefanos Tsitspas. So he can try and claim the overall win for his country. Before looking to clean sweep 3-0 with the doubles action after this.
While Pervolarakis did not have the start & game he wanted for Greece. He did push himself to earn a reprieve during midway in Stage 2. Despite a trail of 3-5 v John Millman. But it was too little, too late in the end. And he will need Tsitspas to tie 1-1 to give Greece a fighting chance. With the No.1 spot in Group B up for grabs. In which grants you an entry in the semis.
